Freeport-McMoRan was honored with a Product Stewardship Award from BNSF Railway for the safe transportation of hazardous materials by rail in 2018.

Companies receiving the award transported a minimum of 400 loaded tank cars of hazardous materials with zero, non-accident releases during last year's full transportation cycle. Freeport-McMoRan won the award with respect to the sulfuric acid cars it routed on the BNSF railroad and delivered to its New Mexico operations. The company verifies the tank cars are properly inspected and in proper condition for transportation after the cars are unloaded.
